We want to send a big thank you to everyone who participated in our competition and helped make it a success!
A special congratulations to Bitzer (Owner Ruth Green) and Simba (Owner Christopher Jon Wright), the very handsome winning dogs who have earned a place in the Litter Free Cast & Sea Somerset leaflet and new owners of the amazing Bogg bag. Their photos (see below) won the hearts of our judges, as they felt they were the best fit for the competition!
The winners and the first four runners-up will receive a bogg. Bogg is a new, all-in-one, dog bag dispenser and waste carrier. Stylish, lightweight and rain proof, it will carry full bags of poo securely and discretely until a suitable bin is reached.
Harriet Yates-Smith, Litter Free Coast & Sea Somerset Project Officer
” I helped Bogg bags judge the photos and I’m so happy to see so many dogs enjoying our beaches, rivers, parks and woods. All dog owners can all help to protect our beach and countryside by keeping it free from dog waste. Although most dog owners are responsible and bag & bin their dog’s mess, just one ignored poo can lead to others following suit not only creating a pollution problem but also making the area look littered and dirty – not nice!
Please remember, wherever you are, to pick up after your dog and bag and bin it. I know bins aren’t always available, but that’s why you have a Bogg!”
